Dark Descendant by Jenna Black
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Dark Descendant is a great book!
This is the first of a new series for Jenna Black and a great start. I am in the middle of reading her Morgan Kingsley books which are also great and knew that Jenna Black would write another wonderful series.
Dark Descendant is about Nikki Glass a private investigator just living her life as normal as possible when a horrible event changes her life forever. She is a descendant of a god (Artemis) and does not realize it until she accidentally kills a man who hired her (Emmett). Although we find out that maybe it was not an accident when all she knows about Emmett is false. She meets others like her - both "good" and evil and she has to make her way though the lies, deception and disbelief in her to survive in this new life.
She has to prove herself to her new "friends", Anderson the leader, Jamaal a wildly acting descendant who does not believe her, several others that have their own agendas and Maggie who seems to be the only friendly one of the bunch. All the while saving herself and her sister from a race known as the Olympians who want to control or destroy other descendants.
A thrilling adventure from start to finish and although not a cliffhanger it sure does leave you wanting to read the next in the series. Hope it finds a great audience and Jenna is able to continue for many more books.
